The Woonsocket Boxing Club veteran, who went 0-3 as a light heavyweight a year ago, returned to the win column in his old weight class this past weekend on Big Six Entertainment’s ‘Who’s Next?’ card at the R.I. Convention Center in Providence.
Gardner seized an all-Blackstone Valley showdown with Pawtucket’s Rameil Shelton by claiming a four-round unanimous-decision victory by scores of 40-36, 39-37, and 39-37.

American Legion about helping fellow veterans

March 11, 2012

On a Friday evening these days, just a handful of members belonging to the Alphonse Yelle Post No. 9 of the American Legion get together at the Post Home at 20 Railroad St.
The reasons they gather together haven't really changed since the post was founded by Manville soldiers returning home from World War I, but it does seem fewer of today's returning warriors have the time or willingness to maintain lasting friendships at a post.

LINCOLN — John Wilson was just a teenager when he encountered what was the greatest challenge of his life. With World War II in full swing, Wilson left his Woodland Street home in Saylesville in 1944 to join the U.S. Navy and soon found himself serving aboard the Fletcher-class Destroyer Isherwood as it entered battle in the Philippines.
He would see action in the battles of Leyte Gulf and Lingayen Gulf and hone his skill as an anti-aircraft gunner before his ship joined the fleet supporting the invasion of Okinawa on April 1, 1945.
